 This is the regular Ranged guide, the guide for ironman / hardcore ironman players can be found here.

Ranged is one of the three Combat classes. It involves using bows, crossbows, and thrown weapons to damage opponents from a distance. Ranged weapons usually have much higher accuracy than the other combat styles. For this reason, it is often used against monsters with very high Defence.

The combat triangle dictates that Rangers are strong against mages but weak against Melee fighters.

Getting Basic Weapons

You can start at Edgeville. Inside the building north of the bank, you will find an NPC that sells ranging items. You will want to look for the "Range Store".


The Range Store sells your basic Ranged armours, as well as a large variety of bows and ammunition


You can get more basic gear and weapons at the table at ::pksupply inside edge bank. All these items are free.



Where to Train

Rock Crab

The best place to start training any combat skill at a low level is Rock crabs.

To get here click on the world map icon, beside the minimap. p5WpixQ.png

Then select "Combat Training" for the category, and then "Rock Crabs Area"


Here you will find the Rock crabs that can be killed in order to start levelling up your combat stats. Start killing these until you feel you have a high enough Attack level to move on to killing other monsters such as Hill Giants, in Edgeville Dungeon or Yaks on Neitiznot (South).


For players with higher levels, the best place train would be at the Bandits Camp, in the desert.

To get here click on the world map icon, beside the minimap. p5WpixQ.png

Then select "Combat Training" for the category, and then "Bandits Camp"


Here you will find a large amount of Bandits that will automatically attack anyone who is wearing Saradomin or Zamorak equipment, allowing for easy AFK experience.
An easy god item to obtain are the god capes from the mage bank. To get these simply teleport to the mage bank, in the 'Player Killing' category, when you arive, enter the pool and then follow the path north. Pray at one of the three statues, if you got the Guthix cape, choose another statue.
Once you have a Zamorak/Saradomin item, simply wear it and the bandits will attack you.

It is recommended to bring a bunyip summoning, as they heal you between 1-10 hp every 15 seconds.


If you are planning on training all your skills, it might help to do slayer at the same time as training combat. You can find a Slayer guide Here.
